Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs #healthy #paleo

This marinade is too epic to be in any way pausing. The marinade made with crisp cilantro, olive oil, lime get-up-and-go, bean stew powder, cumin, salt and pepper. It's basic, it's speedy, and it yields the most tasty, lively chicken thighs one can request.

Basically toss these terrible young men on a flame broil dish or a sweltering barbecue (for those of you with real Spring climate!) and present with rice or use for tacos, bowls, or plates of mixed greens. This is genuinely the most AMAZING fiery cilantro-lime marinade ever. What's more, the chicken turns out superbly succulent and delicate.
